Products of Winterbloom

Winterbloom is an independent, woman-owned music technology company established in 2020. Our mission is to create instruments that empower people to express themselves through music and technology. Because we value openess, transparency, and education, all our products are open source. Thea has been a life-long musician and tinkerer. She started exploring electronics design as a way to apply her engineering skills to the physical world. Synthesizers were the perfect way to combine her engineering and musical lives. After building her first synthesizer, the Genesynth - a synth containing the sound chip from the Sega Genesis, she began working with Eurorack. After designing a few modules for herself, she decided to start Winterbloom. We sold our first modules in March of 2020. Maggie May is the other half of Winterbloom. They're involved with every step of our production process- from packing & shipping orders, assembling circuit boards, to making sure we don’t run out of things.

Winterbloom - Castor & Pollux II

sold out at the moment

Twins that dance in and out of phase, never completely together but never fully apart, bound to each other in the infinite universe.Castor & Pollux is a dual oscillator that echoes back to the legendary Roland Juno but shines with its own unique, massive voice. It contains two digitally-controlled analog oscillators implemented using a faithfully modernized version of the original Juno 106 design. It builds on the classic ‘80s sounds of its inspiration by using the second oscillator and internal LFO to layer in thick detuned sounds and harmonically complex hard synced waveforms.Castor & Pollux II brings a redesigned interface and moves individual waveform outputs to an included expansion. Both versions have the same features and use the same firmware.PS: very lovely packed (looks like a birthday gift), includes a button (for your clothes) and a test protocol of the SMD pre-soldered unit. Nice!DIY-Kit-Type:SMD-Kit-1. This is a Do-It-Yourself kit, not an assembled module. The kit includes all parts to build the module. All SMD parts are pre-soldered, only trough-hole parts to solder.
